Mr. Jay Liles
House Committee on Natural Resources By ----
House Office Building, Room 214
Tallahassee, Florida 32304

Dear Mr. Liles:

Pursuant to your request of July 23, 1975 for material and information
concerning our larger landholdings, we have attached a copy of our Land
Acquisition Status Packet and a reference map of the Four River Basins,
Florida Project Plan. The acquisition effort is part of the District's
obligation, as local sponsor of Four River Basins, to the Federal
Government.

The packet shows the status of land acquisition in the proposed flood
detention areas and water storage lands effective December 31, 1974. To
show current land acquisition status, we have included tabulation sheet
titled Significant Land Acquisition by SWFWMD, effective July 1, 1975.
The tabulations include total acreage and cost figures for acquisitions
funded through the State Water Resource Development Account and for
acquisitions funded through local ad valorem taxes.

An important consideration concerning these approximate cost figures is
that they generally comprise only those costs paid by the District for the
property. They do not include, for example, costs for appraisal or legal
fees connected with legal representation for the District or the landholder.

In addition to the above, we are providing you with a current list of our
Governing Board and Basin Board members.

Please contact us if we can be of further assistance.

Very truly yours,


E. D. VERGARA
Deputy Executive Director
for Interagency Coordination
